These identical gravestones in the front of Rowley Cemetery, Locke Township, Ingham County, Michigan, are the first and second husbands of Margaret Rosa Price Spencer.  Margaret first married William S. Price about 1852, perhaps in Locke Township.  After Price died in 1861, Margaret married William Spencer on 18 April 1864 in Locke.  Spencer is the younger brother of my ancestor, Wright Spencer.  William and Margaret eventually retired to Perry Village a few miles north.
